So my boss is having a little boy and she was lamenting the lack of super cute things for baby boys, so I thought I'd try to surprise her with something cute for her little man, not a moment too soon, either as her shower will be very soon.

Here are pics



I haven't entirely finished it. I may add pom-pom eye balls, I'm sort of on the line as I don't want to over do it.

There's a little (ok a BIG) part of me that wants to make one MY size, but that may come at a later date.

It's made with Red Heart's TLC Amore and let me say, if you can avoid working with this yarn, I would. It is great for baby clothes, soft, wash/dry able and non-allergetic, but it's a P.I.T.A. to work with, especially the finishing step. Just my 2

Just too cute! I think that I used that yarn as well and was so ticked at the end with a knot, that I chucked the rest.

 Grin I designed it myself and hope to post a pattern eventually. It's pretty straight forward, just a simple long sleeved hoodie with moss trim in most areas but ribbed extra long cuffs so baby can hopefully grow a little and still fit in it.

Well, then, I'll definitely let you know when I get a pattern together.  Smiley

Right now, I'm working on a toddler sized poncho in crochet as well. That will be TWO little kid's patterns. Let me tell you, it's nice to finish projects so quickly. WEEEEEEE

Oh, me too, I think it's so cute to see kids dressed as animals.
I do think it'd be terribly fun to walk around LA tressed like a dragon now that I'm an adult, though.

Absolutely, positively adorable!  One of the cutest little kid things I've seen!  Would be adorable for boys or girls, I think.  And it wouldn't take much to modify it to be a unicorn.  Make a mane where the spines are and add a little horn.  Oooh, for the dragon, you could make tiny little claws and sew them to the "top" of the cuff edge so they overlapped the hand just slightly.  Or, if it was made for a very young baby, extend the cuff into one of those fold-over to mitts type cuffs, and put claws on such that they showed off the end of the mitt when folded over.  (Geesh, I can picture it in my head, but have no idea if that even made sense.)

I think I saw Walmart had that very color of TLC Amore on clearance for very cheap.  I think that's similar to, if not the same as, Red Heart "Plush" yarn, which I worked with to make a fringe on a polar fleece blanket.  The end result was very fetching, but my biggest beef was the darned STATIC!  Granted, I live in a state that gets very humid during the summer and VERY dry during the winter, on top of the heater drying things out even further, so EVERYthing gets staticy here, but it was REALLY staticy, and it made it very tough to work with.

Lothruin,
Your ideas all sound really great!
I love the idea of little claws.
